Mission Statement

Since its inaugural season in 1989, the Atlantic Classical Orchestra’s mission has been to present musical performances of the highest possible artistic level while encouraging and cultivating the appreciation of classical symphonic music by offering enriching, educational, and accessible musical experiences to Treasure Coast & Palm Beach County residents. Now, on its 27th season, the Atlantic Classical Orchestra continues to broaden its outreach as a primary cultural resource throughout the Treasure Coast & Palm Beach County area.

The Atlantic Classical Orchestra’s Educational Outreach Program seeks to foster the appreciation, cultivation and support of classical music by engaging with the community’s local schools and educational music programs.
